Well you know how birds are...
How long was Hawkman staring at that window before he noticed his wife was outside? Was this some kind of test because yesterday the window was so filthy he couldn’t see through it? Is it now so clear that Hawkgirl thinks it’s open and is seconds away from just smashing into the glass? We’ll never know!
That looks really uncomfortable.
HOW CAN AN INVISIBLE AIRPLANE LOOK BRIGHT. IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE. And what are you doing, Diana? Some kind of acrobatic flip while scrubbing your airplane? There are easier ways to get to the other side of your plane, dear. Super Dictionary, why didn’t you just use El Dragón and his two cars to illustrate this point? ==== While Wonder Woman fruitlessly attempts to make her...
Another very subtle environmental message brought...
You two must’ve read Wilson’s report on Metropolis’s river. You look very concerned, Lois. I know the indecision is killing you. What to make Superman tackle first? The air pollution or the water pollution? (Because you know Lois is going to try to make Superman fix it. Look at her and that Silver Age haircut! It’s what she does!)
I want to learn about magic!
Well, your majesty, Conjura didn’t come to MY classroom to teach us about magic. You’re just a bragger. And nobody likes a bragger. And that seems very inefficient, Conjura. If you were just going to visit all the classrooms anyway, why didn’t you just have the school call an assembly so you could teach them all at once?
Wil and Ted!
Forebears of the illustrious “Bill and Ted.” Oh I see, clarifying the previous definition. I wonder if they were always in the same class at the same time.
This could be taken...a few different ways.
I know it probably wasn’t entirely intentional, but really Super Dictionary? Taking two of the made-up-for-this-book black people in this book and using them for the word “class?” I guess they are some of the few characters who only have one identity. And we know how The Super Dictionary feels about using secret identity names in this book. It doesn’t believe in them.
Oh bravo. Bravo.
I’m going to say this is a slow, sarcastic clap. Because I don’t know anyone who just claps three times.
Wilson Forbes: City Man
Well. Fair enough, Super Dictionary. I guess Wilson does work in a city, since he’s in Metropolis. And I guess a lot of people do live in cities. And I guess there are a lot of jobs in cities. ==== And with that fairly accurate definition, we conclude today’s page of The Super Dictionary. Come back tomorrow for more definitions from your favorite heroes! Check out under the cut...
That doesn't sound like our Catwoman!
That sounds very un-Catwoman-like. I can’t imagine Selina actually being okay with exploiting her cats for entertainment value.
So that's how Kryptonians see!
I didn’t know that Kryptonian telescopic vision was literally telescopic! And that’s pretty clever of Supergirl, being able to pinpoint Superman as you circle the world at super speed! (Supergirl Costume Tally: 7! In a drastic departure from the hotpants or the skirt, we have Supergirl in a much more Superman-like costume!)
Well that's not very educational. Or at least not...
I think that the people who ran away from Joker are probably people who are afraid his cigar is about to explode. I’m amused that this definition for cigar leaves out the crucial part about “tobacco.”
Something tells me that "mosque" and "synagogue"...
Going to church by rocket seems a little extravagant, Jonna. Maybe you should walk or take your jetpack or something. Jonna’s hometown must be a lot like mine. So super-protestant and church filled that back in the early 1980s when my family moved there and my mom asked if there were any other religious houses in town, a woman very earnestly and proudly said, “Oh! We have a Catholic...
Another oddly in-character definition!
I think the last time that happened, we were watching the Joker refuse to tell us his age. I love that Superman is trying to scold Luthor into telling him his evil scheme. I’m half expecting his next line to be, “If you don’t tell me what you’re planning right now, young man, I AM TURNING THIS CAR RIGHT AROUND AND WE ARE GOING HOME.” On the other hand, bwah,...
Who wouldn't want to play Aquaman's water games?
All I could think of when I saw this was this 1935 short entitled “Donkey Baseball”. But before your peals of laughter subside from Manatee Baseball (with special guests octopus, whales, and turtle!), check out Aquaman’s cro-magnon expression: Excellent.
Picking and choosing, eh SR-12?
I guess choosing friends to go with you on a space trip is better than choosing to be tortured by a little girl.
Jody: The Wood Chopping Machine
Really? Enough for the whole winter? I know it’s just you and Tomahawk out in your little loveshack, but that is a hell of a lot of wood.
Atom is pretending he can fly!
It’s the closest he’ll ever get! But why would you choose that, Atom? The last time you chose to be doll-sized, a demonic little girl smashed your head into a table. You should know better! ==== So while Atom inevitably gets beaten to pulp, we end today’s page of The Super Dictionary. Come back tomorrow for more fun and games and bearded Robins! Check out under the cut for...
Krypto continues to act like a dog.
It seems his temporary identity crisis is over. Wow, that’s the first time that The Super Dictionary has ever made an animal definition that actually compares it to another animal. That’s still not a very good definition of “chipmunk,” but it’s a far sight better than “a furry animal with short legs” or “a long, thin, furry kind of animal”...
Chip chip chip chip chip chip chip!
You’ve used the word chip so many times in this short paragraph that it’s lost all meaning, completely defeating the point of this method of teaching. However, I do wonder what Tomahawk found behind the secret door. I’m going to say a unicorn! Because that sounds as likely as anything.
You have yet to make this dream a reality, Dick.
Look at you, Dick! Totally trying to imagine having a beard on your hairless chin while you’re on stake-out. I don’t think Superman would approve, though. Maybe that’s why you still don’t have a beard, even 30 years and later.
